I canít pinpoint the exact date he was permanently promoted to that role, but over the past 82 games, Tlusty has registered 177 shots (and 31 goals). Using his career shooting percentage, that amounts to ~24 goals over a 177 shot, 82 game season. Since being given an opportunity in the Top 6, Jiri has generally produced like a Top 6 forward.

So we should believe that Tlusty is the real deal because of an extrapolation of his numbers from about 60 or so games over the course of 2 seasons?
